The Republic of San Marino is the oldest surviving sovereign state in the world, founded on 3 September 301. It separated from the Roman Empire and remains one of the smallest countries in Europe with the population of about 30,000. San Marino is surrounded by Italy and its official language is Italian. Despite the small size, San Marino's economy has been thriving since its foundation - it has the lowest unemployment rate in Europe, no national debt, and high budget surplus.
